Mr. Robin Cook

[holding answer 22 October 1998]: I was accompanied by my Special Adviser, Mr. David Clark, when he travelled to Brussels for meetings, including calls on the NATO Secretary General Sonana and SACEUR General Wesley Clark to discuss Kosovo. My party travelled on an RAF 125 official aircraft. The cost to the FCO budget for Mr. Clark was £229.

Since the visit was completed in a day, no accommodation costs were incurred.
